Thank You Paul Ryan (Seriously, Thank You)

I'm not being snarky.  I really do think Rep. Paul Ryan really does deserve thanks.  Why?  Well in the midst of all the conversation about who should be the next ox to be gored I mean Speaker of the House, Rep. Ryan made an interesting demand to those who seek to have him run for that most un-fun office:  He wasn't going to give up his family time.  Reference HERE.

In fact he said "I cannot and will not give up my family time".

In a building full of weasels who basically try to out weasel each other, it's very refreshing to see a senior member of the institution stand up for something that doesn't really involve political demagoguery.   Yes, I know, the cynic can claim that this is just another form of posturing to some group or another, but in the real world of American politics, where someone like Newt Gingrich (who has been thrice married) can talk about family values...but not live them...Rep. Ryan is putting his money where is mouth is, and that's refreshing.

I may not agree with all of his politics, but he is doing a service to working Dads everywhere.

Well done Sir, well done.
